over the last year. >> barack obama is a very effective debater. >> we know that governor romney has been practicing for months. i think the invasion of normandy took less preparation than he pult into the debates. >> he hasn't had a dedate against a democrat in over ten years, i guess probably 2002. >> i've never been in a presidential debate like this, and it will be a new experience. >> what can we really expect dpr next week's showdown in colorado? joining me is michael, special correspondent for "newsweek" and "the daily beast." everyone says this debate is an absolute must-win for mitt romney. isn't that kind of what we always say? isn't it always a do or die situation for one of the candidates? what's different this time around? >> the only thing that's different this time around, craig, is this is happening at an exact moment when it feels like mitt romney may be falling off the clip. he's got one leg dangling out over there. if he doesn't do something to collect himself and get back up on terra firma and head in the other direction he has a real problem. it's the timing of i
that are not going to work that fit with the narrative that we've had for years that obama is strong. >> can i grant you that and ask, what about the debate? a debate on foreign policy that will bring these issues into the forefront. >> i would love to see obama who really knows these issues from a firsthand fingerprints on the documents way, versus romney who has been multiple choice and really has no foreign policy background at all. >> as you were saying at the beginning, s.e., a case to be made for going into either of these directions, either embracing the foreign policy criticism, going at it hard, trying to use that as a broader frame to say the president is ineffective, or sticking with the economy. i think either decision has a rationale behind it. what struck me as you have, mitt romney today with an op-ed in the "wall street journal" going to give this foreign policy speech next week as the same time the campaign is saying they're not going to change their day to day message. you have them basically not really making a decision between either of those two courses. i think it comes back to
doubled our spending under george bush. we continue to add during the obama years, but had to deal with the iraq and afghanistan wars and the bush tax caps -- cuts that were never paid for. the support president obama as are commanded -- commander in chief? do you believe he is the united states citizen? you accept the fact the columns of the christian? >>-- he called himself a christian? >> that was three questions. i will say, of course barack obama is our commander in chief. i wish he were a stronger commander in chief. >> to you believe in the? >> let him finish, please. you posed the question. >> i wish he were a stronger commander in chief. in recent weeks, we saw the tragedy of the assassination of -- >> let him finish. >> ok. >> they are simple questions. >> i.n.d. stand you would like to put meat on the cross examination stage. if you would like a -- >> i'll give you about 20 seconds, then we will move on. >> i wish she were a stronger commander in chief. the last few weeks, we saw our ambassador to libya assassinated in an organized action by al qaeda on september 11. his
to 35-year-olds. those that had hope and dreams who voted for obama four years ago. they're seeing their economic futures decimated. there is a lot of people look at the overall picture, foreign policy, domestic policy, energy prices, job market, debt situation and something is not on track. that's what we're seeing. bill: this also stand out too. in our polling. when asked, which candidate would likely take the lead on world events, keep in mind what is happening with libya and throughout the arab world, governor romney is at 52%. president obama is at 36%. what explains that? >> i think it is explained explicitly what happened over last several weeks with libya and egypt and 30 other capitals where our embassies were targeted for attack. let's get blunt. no way to sugar coat this. we have been flat-out lied to. they know they lied. as if airplanes crashing into the world trade center said those were just accidents. anybody with two eyes and iq of plant life knows what happened in libya was not spontaneous reaction to a 13 minute video on youtube. it was a planned orchestrated att
a 161 billion deficit and then blows out a trillion in the obama years and the affect of all of those policiless had taken place. and the big change if you look at the trajectory of government is a massive spending increase. he took us to a new level . 24 percent of the economy consumed boy the federal government. historically it was under 20. >> if he wins reelection we have fur more years and trillion worth of new deficit going on the deficit. >> yes 10 trillion . i don't know how we are going to pay for this . inheritance and his successor is going it inherit a problem. >> gretchen: this is before obama care? >> thos a great point. we had massive stimulus and everything and category of spending going up yet, the big bills of obama care comes later and hasn't showed up yet. and even the democrats who run the congressional budget office said that will cost 1.7 tril yen if a decade. >> gretchen: coming up next. tragedy trikes in hollywood. katie perry exboyfriend now dead after murdering his land lady and dying misterously. >> writing a letter and you will not believe what got him in
's recent use of a 14-year-old clip out of context from obama using the word redistribution. that too four pinocchios. but we're not done yet. romney claimed obama raised healthcare costs by $2400 per person. that also, four pinocchios. rerepeatedly claims obama went on an apology tour after taking office. he did not. four pinocchios. romney claimed that 100,000 auto industry jobs have been don't even get me started on that one. i'll just say what the post said. four pinocchios, false. by the way, there's a lot more. the man cannot help himself. now, i would call him a serial liar but that would probably give serial liars a bad name. let's look beyond the hypocrisy and think about team romney's calling the president a liar in advance of the debates. what is that strategy all about? mostly it is about working the refs the media so the media is primed to listen for any falsehoods from the president during the debate. now, as you know, debates are all about managing expectations. remember that george w. bush did "better th
years since president obama has been in a televised debate. he's about to start cramming for his first match-up with governor romney. is he going to get back into fighting shape? and violent protests are spreading across europe as governments implement new austerity measures. we'll tell you what happens why -- why what happens over there matters to us over here. this is "the war room" only on current tv. we'll be right back. presidential debate. with unrivaled analysis and commentary. >> you're going to hear that used as a major talking point. (vo) the only network with real-time reaction straight from the campaigns and from viewers like you. >>now that's politically direct. the chill of peppermint. the rich dark chocolate. york peppermint pattie get the sensation. >>i jump out of my skin at people when i'm upset. do you share the sense of outrage that they're doing this, this corruption based on corruption based on corruption. >>i think that's an understatement, eliot. u>> i'm not prone tot. understatement, so explain to me why that is. i think the
, in 2008 president obama won virginia specifically the first time a democrat had won that state in 44 years. he also won all of the other states we mentioned in our introduction, colorado, florida, ohio and virginia what is president obama doing wrong in time around? >> he's not doing anything wrong. you are right, win virginia last time. i believe he will win it again this time. he does have a lead in that state in most polls. the one area where he's behind is the veteran vote. he's running even with white males against romney, if you take out the veterans vote. >> heather: that veteran vote is significant. trey, veterans are a high turn-out demographic concentrated in battleground states nearly one million each in north carolina, ohio and virginia, 1.6 million in florida. it is a significant demographic. how will events in the mideast, including that deadly attack at the consulate in libya and the administration's reaction following attacks, how will that affect the veteran vote? >> that is the issue. it absolutely will. you didn't have to be in charlotte to see the democrat party is bein
much. he was 86-years-old. >> heather: courting the military vote, president obama and governor romney campaigning in the critical battleground state of virginia this week capturing support of service members is key to winning that state. has that support slipped for president obama? take a look at this, a poll in four important battleground states, specifically colorado, florida, ohio and virginia, among veterans, president obama is trailing governor romney by double digits by as much as 20%, party points in colorado and florida. how will this play out on election day? president of new heights communications and the former spokesperson to vermont governor dean and the senior vice president of box global, thank you for joining us. >> thanks for having me >> heather: this is the first time in 80 years, that neither ticket had a veteran in the running. traditionally republicans had the upper hand when it comes to the military vote. will that be the case this year too or can president obama turn these polls around? trey i'll start with you. >> you don't have to have military service to ru
that president obama ran four years ago when he ran on hope and change. now what he is running on is, this is the best we can do, america. we contrasted that, by the way, in our editorial this morning, with john f. kennedy in 1960 running against the eisenhower and nixon economy. at that time the economy was growing 2.5 to 3 percent and john f. kennedy famously said, we can do better. he minute by that, we should aspire to 4 percent or 5 percent economic growth. it is demoralizing when the president said we are only growing at 1.6 percent or 1.7 percent but this is the best we can do. >>neil: that is the worse john f. kennedy impression ever. i am kidding. >>guest: i am in chicago. i cannot do the boston accent. >>imus: we have mentioned this in the past. we had years of getting used to crappy numbers. when they are not as bad we do a jig. i can remember, as you can remember, and i don't think we are that sold, steve, that this would be laughable in any country, yet, maybe because we got used to so little we are grateful for so little. >>guest: there is some truth to that. people are
debates in the primaries oefrt the last year. >> barack obama is a very effective debater. >> we know governor romney is practicing for months. i think the invasion of normandy took less preparation than he's putting into the debates. >> i'm joined by the president of progress and former obama white house adviser and also with us is robert trainum. nera, you helped with hillary clinton's debate preps and you worked robert with with rick santorum and president bush. let's get to the heart of it, robert. both sides lowering expectations, but realistically how important is this debate for romney "nightly newmitt romney? >> it's very important. this is his second time to make an impression. the first time was during the republican convention. the second time is in a situation where he's going to be asked very specific, detailed policy questions and in fairness he gets a chance to put president obama on the defensive the but to sflan to the american people specifically what he wants. here's the unfortunate truth about this, chris. both presidential candidates, president obama and governor
to respond? the national debt has gone in the nearly four years of the obama administration from more than $10 trillion to now more than $16 trillion, an increase of $6 trillion. >> well, first of all, wolf, let me just say this. the two wars have cost us an enormous amount of money and the loss of our brave servicemen and women as well. so that added to the national deficit. and one other thing that we should talk about in terms of the national deficit, part of it is that we're not bringing in as much revenue as we should be bringing in to pay for all the things, the services and programs that the american people continue to desire. there's no question under this president that we've seen, you know, the most significant budget cuts also in the history of country. discretionary spending is at its lowest in 60 years. taxes are also at their lowest. but the one thing that the democrats have not done, we haven't walked away from the table. we haven't pointed fingers and said it's their fault. we're all in this together. it's time republicans roll up their sleeves and come to the table so we c
president obama is in unchartered water. he hasn't debated in four years. instead of being the 40 something senator who has got two years in office with this great orator skills and promise, talk to your enemy, i'm going to reach out to the islamic community, the muslim world. i'm going to rebalance our economy, make it a fairer situation. and then promise health care and immigration reform. he could say whatever he wants and senator mccain sits there and g that's impossible, but i can't prove it. now we have four years to look at and say, what did you do? why did do you it? defend what you've done. that makes it a lot easier for governor romney n my mind, than senator mccain. no more theories. now we've resume. >> steve: that's right. and in fact, the romney camp has kinds of changed their strategy over the last couple of days publicly and now they're going to make it a choice. so many people know that the economics of our situation right now are horrible and if you look at history, there is no reason this president would be reelected given the past, if it's prologged, given the fact that
to the state this election cycle president obama is making his 13th visit this year alone. earlier this month the democratic ticket made clear just how much ohio means to them. >> if we win ohio, we win the election. >> if we win toledo, we will win ohio. and if we win ohio we'll win this election. >> john heilemann, there has been no shortage of love for the state of ohio this election cycle. president obama and mitt romney both speaking at 1:05 today. i wonder your take on the state it's interesting when you look at the dynamics economically at play in ohio. governor cakasic's great job of sheparding the ohio economy to account for state unemployment 7.2%, lower than the national average, it also undercuts mitt romney's message this economy isn't in turn around and time to get someone else. >> makes john kasic a hobbled sur row gate for mitt romney, you can't say the economy is great when you're trying to prove the economy is bad. thing about ohio it's an important state, and remember when 2004 the whole election came down to john kerry losing narrowly to george w. bush in that state, the p
, at that debate, they were talking about the wars. this year, president obama does bring it up, he does bring it up at most of his stump speeches, how he explains what he has done and planning on doing talking about the two wars. he doesn't have to say much more because he's speaking to an empty room. the romney campaign has no identifiable position on afghanistan. they have been unwilling and unable to hold up that side of debate and so regardless of what it means for the candidates as a country we are deprived of a national discussion about a war we are in. 70,000 american families having skin in the game right now. we have -- that's part of the reason i'm looking forward to the debates. some ways sort of a post-policy campaign. and you can't do that in a debate, at least unless the debate is really bad. >> this is -- this is billed as a domestic policy debate, but -- and there are so many ways this is also domestic policy, these wars. first of all, veterans benefits and the fact that the romney camp views this as part of the defense sequester that somehow is protected it's not pro tented a
on the president in these games and they said they don't get invited back. >> the point it it's true that obama hasn't held a whole lot of press conferences this year, hasn't had debates in a long time, something that campaign has made a pretty big deal about in terms of trying to lower expectations. >> trying to manage expectations. >> he hasn't been challenged in these very public ways and in quite some time. >> if you read the memos from both campaigns it turns out they're both terrible debaters. that's one thing i learned. >> oh, gosh. >> we're going too talk more about that after the break. love the one you're with or keep the one you're with. despite congress's disapproval rating they appear to be settling with the same old incumbents. next on "now." bob... oh, hey alex. just picking up some, brochures, posters copies of my acceptance speech. great! it's always good to have a backup plan, in case i get hit by a meteor. wow, your hair looks great. didn't realize they did photoshop here. hey, good call on those mugs. can't let 'em see what you're drinking. you know, i'm glad we're both runn
, the barack obama now has not got that sort of messianic feel he had four years ago. he's got to really raise his game in these debates. >> the great thing about this debate is that it gives him the chance to directly confront mitt romney on what his plans are. mitt romney has been talking generally about how he's going to save the country from the economic mess that the president has led us into. well, the reality is the stock market is booming, we've seen the jobs numbers turn around, the numbers today saying that there's net job creation takes away a big talking point and what is mitt romney going to do specifically, how is his tax plan going to be structured? he hasn't answered those. what deductions is he going to take away because failure to answer allows for there to be an argument that he's going to raise taxes on the middle class to pay for tax cuts for the wealthy. so i think the president has a real opportunity here. i do think in the convention, bill clinton was a wonderful third party validater. the president has a chance to go on the attack as well in a presidential way, but i t
. there is a point there, barack obama hasn't done a debate now for quite a long time. mitt romney spent most of the year debating and he got better and better. i thought actually he was a very good debater. one of the reasons he won the nomination was his ability to swat away all comers. so i would think this could be a bit of a surprise coming next week, where mitt romney maybe ought to refocus his whole campaign, get momentum and really get after barack obama at a time when barack obama least wants him to. >> i totally agree with you, piers. this is the moment for mitt romney to seize the momentum back. he's going to put everything he can into winning this debate and you know, the media doesn't like a lopsided race so i actually have predicted that the media are going to declare that mitt romney is the winner of the first debate regardless of actually what happens, because the pendulum cannot sustain itself if it's too lopsided in terms of the media. it's also true as stephanie said, five out of the six challengers to incumbents in presidential races have been declared the winner of the fi
for the wealthiest americans which is what president obama wanted those families making more than $250,000 a year, individuals making more than $200,000 a year, what would the impact of that be? >> well, you know, that would hurt but that is something that the economy could digest because the -- total hit would be much smaller. of course, you are hitting higher income households who have other saving, other financial resources. they wouldn't pull back on their spending to the same degree. association you know, all else being equal it would be -- a negative to the economy in the very near term but it is something the economy could digest and -- ultimately longer run we need to address our fiscal situation. that is, we need government spending cuts and we need additional tax revenue. both of those things to address our fiscal problems. one way or the other we are going to need additional tax revenue and 2 most likely place to get additional tax revenue is from higher income households. >> $1.3 trillion deficit you definitely need something to bring that deficit down. bring the national debt down at
that four more years of the obama administration is four more years the country can't afford. president obama saying that mitt romney and the republicans are offering the same kind of politics that get us into this mess in the first place. gregg: santita jackson joins us and brad blakeman joins us, former deputy assistant to george w. bush. santita let me start with you. americans are very unhappy with the economy, the president says he's unhappy too. is his challenge to explain how the next four years would be any different? and if you look at his convention speech i'm not sure there is any difference. >> you know i think that his great challenge is the same challenge that governor romney faces tomorrow night, which is to be relaysable an rerelatable and likable. likability really does matter. gregg: you don't think people really want specifics, tell me mr. president how the next four years is any different. >> you know, gregg you have to balance style with substance. the fact is they'll have to run against their narrative in a time of great economic want. you've got a very, very wealt
, obama is going to win. >> mitt romney has the advantage because he has been through 20 of these debates. >> mitt romney is a business guy, and hasn't had a debate against a democrat in overten years. >> mitt romney is just in practice. >> having been through this much more recently than president obama, i think he starts with an advantage. >> i think barack obama will be formidable. >> but i have never been in a presidential debate like this, and it will be a new experience. >> the president is going to lose the first debate next week. he will lose it. >> cenk: i love all of that. i happen to disagree with governor governor grandholm. i think at the worse it will be a tie. look at these moments. >> i am not going to exploit age for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience. >> i have as much experience in the congress as jack kennedy did. >> i served with jack kennedy. jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you are no jack kennedy. >> ruddy juliany. he mentioned a noun a verb, and there is something else. >> i would do away with the education -- the
, that was president obama, and vice president biden and so many of the economists who told us four years ago we are going to get out of this mess and we will have a very robust recovery. i just shows the clip and president obama said he would be a one-termer if things are not turned around. have we turned things around? it is dicey. if you look at what happened this week with the g.d.p. numbers that came out, very weak, 1.3 percent growth. that is a third of where we should be. we have $5 trillion in debt. the deficit has not been cut in half. instead, it has actually doubled. when president came in it was $500 billion and now it is $1 trillion. the theme of the re-election campaign could be promises made, promises broken. >> the argument is this recession is different than any we have seen before. in context, we will put up growth in the first 12 quarters after world war ii, talking about the reagan recovery in the mid-80's at 18.5 percent and obama's recovery is 6.7 percent. what do you make of the president's argument this recession is unlike anything we have seen before? ing it is a hard ar
both men have the facts down cold. one of them, after all, has been president for four years. the other has been running for longer than that. barack obama and mitt romney are both nearing the end of intense debate prep, and coaching sessions. and at this point, they're designed either to create or prevent that moment that we've all seen that can somehow change the race. and with millions of americans watching these debates like a kind of super bowl of american politics, the stakes are high as the two men face each other in denver, just two days from now. we begin tonight with nbc's andrea mitchell in our d.c. newsroom. andrea, good evening. >> good evening, brian. it is the political super bowl, or perhaps the world series. mitt romney, behind in all battleground polls for the last three weeks, now has the most to gain from a game-changing night. and the most to lose if he doesn't turn it around. as the candidates head to debate camp, rolling up their sleeves, getting down to work, each claims to be the underdog. >> governor romney, he's -- he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> he pla
't care about where we are better off for years ago. america does not know where we are going and one of these guys has to give them that. >> wrong and wrong. my son has an axiom -- america alex the coolest candidate. obama is mr. cool. trip him up and you have a chance. >> this is not jealous that can be contained. >> the and -- this is not a challenge that can be contained. >> united states is engaging in a policy of bullying. >> some are engaging the absurd notion that a nuclear-arm iraned -- nuclear-armed iran would stabilize the middle east. yeah, right. >> president obama is being criticized for having time to appear on "the view" but not meet with prime minister netanyahu. your question -- why didn't they come out with that right off the bat? >> the attack happened five days after the charlotte convention. democrats had to climb over and over again, spike the football 100 times over killing osama bin laden. that was the one achievement, and the implication is that he was the guy who took care of al eda. you have the sacking at the u.s. embassy, the killing of the ambassador. th
who's still undecided after three and a half years of barack obama andhis whole campaign, someone who is uncidey'ti decid angoing to wait for the debate and that's the vote that matters in the end. >> there's even an extension of that point which is so when you talk about those people, those undecides who are going down to the wire before they decide who to vote for, wha are the issues that are going to drive them? it seems pretty oio t m bas enomic stuff. you know, because those are the people who do not have an ideological stake in either candidate and looking where the news so-called exogenous events might have impact. >> and -- >> europe, middle east. >> the people who drive you crazy saying i think i ne b- n. >> thinking of a litmus test like wait, how do i feel, who's -- >> or seeing them both on stage together and haven't focused in, i like that guy. >> it is worth noting that -- it is impressive in so far as the president is now aordingo a pup when asked who's better on the economy, president obama 43%, mitt romney 34%. that's a significant -- that is a significant number as a
in 2000. that was quite an election year. given it's that time of year again this wednesday president obama, mitt romney start debating this week. we want to take a look back at some of the, well, the lighter moments from presidential hopefuls. the very funny dean joins me now from new york city. hey, dean, thanks for joining us. >> good. thanks for having me. >> what did you think of that moment? did you watch it live 12 years ago? what did you think of that moment with gore? >> i have followed politics for a long time. i think that was a great moment. watching again. it's funny because you have this awkward moment. the whole audience is watching. al gore walks over like franken stein or a school yard bully, and george bush reacts like what are you doing here, buddy, and i think it's funny and it's a glimpse into the bush we get to know like, hey, what's up, how are you doing? i think it was a great human organic reaction, and that's why it creates a connection with the audience at home. what is gore doing? >> also, in 2000 george w. bush has this pretty good line and i'll read it to
is drafting executive order to establish cyber security standards for private companies, president obama has not yet reviewed it similar legislation failed to pass the senate earlier this year. as the hack attacks have spread. remember, sources tell the fox business network that hackers recently targeted the web sites for several major banks including chase, bank of america, meantime, listen to secretary napolitano's response when a reporter asked her about her personal cyber security. >> don't laugh, but i just don't use email at all. >> really? >> yeah, yeah. >> because it's too time consuming or for security purposes? >> um, for a whole host of reasons. so i don't have any of my own accounts.
